Addicted For Now (Addicted #2)
by Krista and Becca Ritchie
Released: 30th November 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.
No. More. Sex.
Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.
Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.
They will torment Lily until Lo breaks.
And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words.
No. More. Us.
New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content
Please note that spoilers for Addicted to You may appear within this review.
Addicted For Now is another fabulously addictive read by the awesome sister duo Krista and Becca Ritchie. This is a continuation from Addicted To You and Ricochet showing the hardships of coping with an addiction and trying to stay clean. The writing style of these lovely ladies was once again fabulous, with easy flow and page turning intrigue. The characters are all fascinating and with the introduction of Daisy and Rykes shenanigans, I can’t wait for their story to be told.
Lily Calloway and Loren Hale have addictions and are trying with all their might to overcome them. With the help and support of their friends and family, they are slowly gaining ground. They have been physically apart for three months while Loren was in rehab for alcoholism and now he has returned it causes all sorts of drama for Lily with her sex addiction.
The relationship between Lily and Loren is as complicated as their addictions. Starting fresh and knowing their love is strong, Lily is excited but anxious to be living officially in the same room. Lily’s therapist has given her an envelope to give to Loren, inside is the “Black List” that they have to adhere to in order to help Lily with her habit. Will Lily be able to handle it?
Loren has to be strong for them both and not give in to Lily’s affections every day or multiple times. But when Loren receives an anonymous text message stating the knowledge of Lily’s addiction with threats of exposure, Loren goes into a rage. He is determined to find out who is responsible and there seems to be only one person that has the money and resources to find out. Loren doesn’t want to ask for help but will do anything for Lily.
Ryke (half-brother to Loren) and Daisy (Rose and Lily’s sister) seem to be bonding, but while Daisy is underage nothing can legally happen. Rose and Connor are having their own relationship problems with Sebastian (Rose’s BFF) getting in the way. Plus with all the stress from this mysterious threat all family businesses may suffer.
Who is the person responsible for the hateful texts? Can Lily and Loren remain vigilant and not succumb to their addictions? What will happen if Lily’s family finds out about her habit? What is Ryke’s story, why is he so up in Loren’s life?
There are so very many elements with Addicted For Now and mystery added in for good measure. I really felt for Loren, he has so much responsibility and even though he caused so much chaos in his teenage years is determined to right some wrongs and grow up. I absolutely love this series, so many hot men, mystery, love and romantic sizzling scenes. I cannot wait for Thrive and the spinoff series and highly recommend it to all romance readers.
